-- more of the same. athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> and cnn newsroom continues with fred. >> have a great day. >> i'm going to go home and turn back my clock before i forget. >> that's right. we'll see you an hour earlier tomorrow. thanks so much. appreciate that. the countdown is on indeed. election day is just three days away now. the presidential candidates are making a huge final push in the battleground states. today president obama campaigns in ohio, wisconsin, iowa and virginia. mitt romney stumping in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. they're running mates are also going nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand.
storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to fi
comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> good morning, washington. take a look there. you have to take a look at this. get in front of your tv and look at that capital building right there. just beautiful, busy day. busy week certainly ahead in washington. so, let's get back to politics now and the final rush to election day. a state that we weren't paying much attention to is now back in the spotlight. we're talking about pennsylvania. mitt romney and paul ryan will be there this weekend. jill biden and joe biden will make stops for president obama, not to mention all the money being spent on a last-minute blitz. the latest poll out of pennsylvania shows a tight race. three points within the margin of error, but can romney win it. john mccain made a final push like this on the sunday before the election in 2008 and he lost. the same plan and same result for george w. bush in 2004 and bob dole in 1996. >>> let's check out florida and that's where we find, long, long lines. some people waited in line as long as five hours to cast their early vote. today is
was right when he said he can't change washington from the inside. you can take him at his word. that's why we're going to send him outside. all right? when i'm elected i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with their leaders. i'm going to endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle who care more about the country than they do about politics. and together, we're going to put the nation back on track to a balanced budget and to reform our tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. now, if the president were to be re-elected he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he would send billions more to his favorite friends and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to middle class families in this country. we can help hold down prices in the pump and grow new energy jobs and n
happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, certainly not the people whose power is out and they're dealing with the hurricane damage and stuff like that. but evidence is pretty clear that people get a general impression of the economy as opposed to looking and sayingering well, this was 171,000 and it was expected to be 125,000 so therefore i'm going to be
in washington with mitt romania any who is going to work with your governor, with your senator, to do things that will get more jobs for ohio and get this economy turned around and get those people back to work instead of having a $1 trillion welfare economy that nobody is happy with. people want to go back to work. >> let talk about your home state of virginia, coveted prize certainly for both candidates what. makes the romney campaign think that they can capture virginia at this point? >> well, we are leading in virginia with independents, just like we are leading in ohio and everywhere, and in virginia we're very concerned about, first of all, the president's tax increases are going to hit our economy just like they are going to hit ohio very hard. two-earner families are going to get hit hard and our small businesses will get hit hard. we have a big small tech industry and the tax increases will put our small businesses in jeopardy at the same time it -- >> let me interrupt you here -- virginia unemployment though is among the lowest in the country at 5.6%, so how will you combat that? >
. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we
need help, they come to washington. and americans expect washington to help. there is a role for the commander in chief, for the president of the united states, when disaster strikes at home. that's what americans expect of their leader. >> were you pleased that the marathon was canceled? >> yeah. i think it was a smart move. i do. it's been -- new yorkers have been really terrific about this. people downtown in manhattan have been four days without light or power. the streets are dark. it's like sarajevo during the siege in the balkans and the thought of more people coming in on top of the people that are already there and the people in and out of hotels, trying to find places to get showers and restaurants closed, basically all of manhattan's population was jammed north of 40th street, so it only makes sense given the uncertainties of this and the pressure on services in manhattan and the discomfiture of people there, don't do the marathon. >> general wesley clark, thank you very much indeed. >> thank you. >>> coming up, rudy giuliani joining me from ohio. what happens when
